It was my boyfriend John who started the collection. He has a
large collection of records and is always on the look-out for suitable
containers for his 45s. I must admit that my reaction when he bought the RG 31 Dansette wasn't quite the same as it
is today! It certainly wasn't coming into my house in that dirty state! John explained that this model( which also had a radio) was
taller than some dansettes, and would accommodate two rows of 45s perfectly. He removed the turntable followed by a complete
transformation thanks to soap and water. By now I was beginning to show
more interest in his project, but remained somewhat anxious when he
decided to take it with us to a venue in Nottingham where he was booked
to DJ. It certainly attracted some attention! We arrived late and
all the seats had been taken - or so we thought! Since that evening 4
years ago the dansette has provided guaranteed seating and even doubles
up as somewhere to put drinks if there isn't a table!
